Our Vision Our Future is a User Led Self Advocacy/Self Help group for adults with Learning Disabilities.  We are a charity, a small voluntary organisation.
We provide a safe place for people with learning disabilities and additional needs to meet and make friends.  Our Vision Our Future is an essential circle of support for its members.  Achieving Self Advocacy and gaining self confidence and personal growth has enabled us to share and solve problems, interact with each other and our community.  We are actively encouraged to help ourselves, use our skills and talents to take part in purposeful and valuable work, enabling us to fulfil some of our personal hopes and dreams.

We offer an alternative to day centres with much choice and opportunity to learn new things and experience a more active fulfilling life which keeps us busy – happier and healthier.

Your donations will fund our future as Our Vision Our Future is our lifeline to our friends and our community – it gives us a life to live for!  It will be used to help pay for the room we use 3 times a week.  It will subsidise transport and provide purposeful, worthwhile activities which improve our social and life skills.  It will support projects like our healthy eating/luncheon club, Drama, dance and music, Friendship First,  keeping safe and a good knowledge of Disability Hate Crime,.   It will help pay for the equipment needed for art and craft sessions. It will keep our computers and other equipment up to date and much more…

People like us with Learning disabilities have been directly affected by the unprecedented financial cut backs to social care services who are finding themselves outside specialist social care provision. 

We would very much appreciate your help as without your donations Our Vision Our Future will close.  We will lose our friends and access to our community.  Without Our Vision Our Future we will be stuck at home lonely and isolated with nowhere to go and nothing to do.

Help spread the word!

We are a self-advocacy organisation for people with learning disabilities. Including people with visual, sensory, physical disabilities, autism and Asperger’s.
OVOF nheeds YOUR help to keep running.
Please give if you can, any amount you can spare will be used to keep the light on and will be targeted at providing advocacy support to those less fortunate than ourselves. As the general population are living longer so are many people with a learning disability, some users have needs related to older age, more limited mobility and memory.
We encourage and support members to do as much as possible for themselves, enabling them to be more active in their local community and have opportunities
to participate in new experiences, we want this to continue.

Our Vision Our Future is a user led voluntary organisation. We support adults with learning disabilities in Derbyshire to run their
Self Advocacy/Self Help group.

We provide a safe place for people with learning disabilities and additional needs to meet and make friends. Our Vision Our Future is an essential circle of support for its members. Achieving Self Advocacy and gaining self confidence and personal growth has enabled us to share and solve problems, interact with each other and our community. We are actively encouraged to help ourselves, use our skills and talents to take part in real and valuable work, enabling us to fulfil some of our personal dreams and aspirations - resulting in a more healthier happier relaxed group of individuals.

We offer an alternative with much opportunity to learn new things and experience a more active fulfilling life.

To keep our group going we need Core Funding, it's our lifeline to our community and gives us a life to live for. This money will be used to pay our rent, our support workers, maintain our equipment, subsidise transport and activities. Activities like days out, luncheon club/healthy eating, swimming, drama dance and music and specialist activities such as Tai Chi. These things help the health and well being of our members but are not normally accessible or affordable to us.

People like us with Learning disabilities have been directly affected by the unprecedented financial cut backs to social care services and are finding themselves outside specialist social care provision.

Without Our Vision Our Future we will be stuck at home lonely and isolated with nowhere to go and nothing to do.

We would very much appreciate your help as without it we will close within 3 months.
